Aeris
Design: Peter Hiort-Lorenzen and Johannes Foersom


Lammhults is launching Aeris, an elegant aluminum chair by Danish designers Johannes Foersom & Peter Hiort-Lorenzen. The cast aluminum chair is scaled down and poetic, designed for conferences and public settings, but equally comfortable in a design-conscious home interior. The chair is expected to be the new bestseller and make quite an impression in the world of design.


Lammhults is strengthening its range with products that can be classed as ‘Modern Essentials’. The products should be obvious, scaled down and future classics. The cast aluminum chair Aeris fits in nicely with the wellconsidered design collection, with its scaled down yet poetic form.

“We set Peter and Johannes the brief of designing a simple, elegant, exclusive chair that will become the natural new chair for public environments. We have spent three years on product development, which shows how hard it can be to create a simple design. Aeris is the essence of the knowledge Lammhults has amassed in technology, innovation and design, and we are very proud of the results,” says Managing Director Åke Jansson.

The designers themselves confirm that they wanted to challenge the existing Lammhults collection with a chair made using a brand new technique.

Lammhults has teamed up with designers Johannes Foersom & Peter Hiort-Lorenzen several times to design chairs that have become classic design icons. The designers and producer all take care to develop products that stand the test of time, while also driving technical progress forward. 2005 saw the launch of Imprint, a wooden chair in a soft design. Other successful collaborations include Spira, Club and Campus.

The Aeris chair is cast in aluminum and comes in different versions: with or without armrests, as a swivel chair or a stackable chair. The seat shell is made from molded wood veneer (ash or wenge) and is also available with a fully or partially upholstered seat and back.

 

Comet
Design: Gunilla Allard

Gunilla Allard’s Comet strengthens shining star in Lammhults range
Gunilla Allard is continuing her successful collaboration with Lammhults. The Stockholm Furniture Fair sees the launch of two new versions of the Comet conference chair with consummate design: a lounge easy chair offering lower comfortable seating, and a chair on a runner base that conveys a light, airy impression.

The lounge easy chair has an almost iconic style language that flirts both with 1960s Star Trek and future design. Comet Lounge is where you want to sit for a long time. The secret lies in the built-in support for the curve of the back, which provides complete comfort. Comet with the runner base is a lighter but above all quieter alternative to a chair with legs, as it glides over the floor and makes it easier to move. As always with Allard’s designs, the details have been refined and have been allowed to take all the time they need.

Seating comfort and chair design have become something of a signature for Gunilla Allard, and they are talents she has developed and refined over the years. With Comet, Lammhults’ design department and experienced craftspeople
show once again that they meet the highest class and standards of quality.

“My aim is to design and develop modern furniture with Scandinavian austerity. With Comet I’ve developed a brand new expression, both with interesting design and good function,” Gunilla Allard explains. ”Comet encloses you. It’s a chair you sit in, rather than on.”

Comet has a clear, distinct design where the seat and back are softly shaped in a slender silhouette into a harmonious whole. Comfort, simplicity and modernity have been guiding principles in the design and development process. The idea behind the soft rounded shape of the chair is that it should give the user the feeling of an embrace.

A comet is a celestial body orbiting the sun. About once a decade, a visible bright comet passes in the sky and we can see something unusual and exciting.


Area sofa collection
Design: Anya Sebton

Lammhults asked designer Anya Sebton to further develop the successful Area sofa collection. New upholstered footstools and a neat little table are being presented at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, products which thanks to a unique technical solution can be put together using strong magnetic couplings. The same module can be turned in both directions and expanded in an infinite number of variations.


The Lammhults design team has together with Anya Sebton developed such a unique magnetic linking device for furniture that a patent is pending. The magnets are innovatively concealed within the furniture, and they lock the modules together with unexpectedly high stability that can cope with 70 kilos of pressure. It is easy for the user to rearrange the seating group without screws or other conventional fasteners.



The new table in perforated metal plate is reminiscent of a transparent net and creates excitement in the meeting between the different materials, solid with transparent. The triangular footstool, which is also new, can simply be put together with other products in the series to create new impressions and areas of application: six footstools facing each other form a large pouf, two footstools become an oblong bench, and a whole row creates a playful, snaking seating area that can easily be combined with modules that have back supports.

“A product should work as well in the middle of a room as against a wall. It should be good enough to look at from all angles. Giving the product development process and the designer the time required to achieve these criteria is something that is unique to Lammhults, and an inspiring challenge for us designers,” says Anya Sebton, whose modular furniture Area is a design classic of the future.

Area already comprises five modular units - right, left, corner and center units plus a footstool - which can be used separately or in groups. Two, three or even more seater sofas can easily be created. The innovative linking device consisting of built-in magnets makes the units easy to regroup, to create new seating solutions adapted for the current need. The asymmetrically shaped footstools can be linked together to form smart bench solutions and the center unit also makes an excellent free-standing easy chair.

The design is timeless with its own modern character. The diagonal lines are echoed in the design and upholstery. The high back offers a feeling of seclusion in open areas and makes it possible to build a room within a room. The design has been appreciated by figures such as Sir Paul Smith, who has used Area and covered the furniture in his own distinctive fabrics.

Area is ideal for public meeting spaces such as waiting areas, lounges and lobbies, as well as home interiors.


Cargo Gastro
Design: Gunilla Allard

Lammhults’ Cargo trolley has become something of a modern design classic since its launch in 1999. With its simple and meticulously thought-out geometric steel construction,
strongly influenced by the functionalisms thoughts, the trolley fits in well with Lammhults’ design philosophy “Modern Essentials”. The new Cargo Gastro gives the gastronome an exclusive trolley with marble trays for cheeses, chocolates and avec or for decanting wines.



“Developing the new Cargo Gastro has been a pure delight,” says designer Gunilla Allard. “It came about thanks to several and long conversations with Swedish restaurateur Per Bengtsson, who runs the highly respected PM & Vänner in Växjö, which I always visit when I´m working in Lammhult. Per has been a sounding board throughout the process, and has come up with some good ideas for how the trolley can be refined as regards function and ergonomics to live up to the tough demands of a gourmet.”



In addition to the exclusive, easily detachable marble trays, available in two sizes, the trolley has a cover for storing cheese. This is to ensure that the flavors and aromas of certain cheeses do not mix with others. The trolley is also extremely easy to move in all directions thanks to the special wheels.

No doubt the new Cargo Gastro will find a natural home among top restaurateurs around the world, but also among private individuals who want to offer that little bit extra at dinner parties.

Cargo Gastro is characterized by high flexibility in terms of form, color and function, and can be ordered in different versions. The chromed steel frame can be supplemented with black or white laminate shelves. The handle is covered with leather.

When not in use it becomes an elegant sideboard, or why not a mobile cocktail cabinet? Simply remove the top trays in the trolley to create space for bottles and glasses. Cargo Gastro is a neat, flexible trolley for stylish storage and serving.
